Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

After being on all the deep sea charters out of Yamba I personally rate Yamba fishing and charter as the best .
Fast boat =more fishing time
Glynn put us right on the spot with lots of fish caught.
Glynn was constantly sharing tip and advise on fishing .

Thank you Neil, we love our fishing. The fact we can move around fast means we can run that 500hp at full speed & get to those secret fishing spots Yamba is known for. Cheers & happy fishing, Julie & Glynn

From the first phone call with Julie for the booking to being out with Glynn in the boat for several hours this tour was exceptional in every way.

Unbelievable fishing charter experience. From the ease and clarity of booking with Julie to the expert guiding and fishing knowledge of Glynn, it was faultless and a must do activity for experienced and novice fishermen and women alike!

Best fishing charter ever. Glenn was very casual but very professional and very knowledgeable. We did the half day trip left at 6am and saw a lovely sunrise. Would highly recommend this fishing charter.

Apologies for the late reply to your review, we are very grateful. A fishing trips magic moment is at sunrise & an experience that usually precedes a good fishing day. Thanks for joining us & see you for another sunrise soon. Cheers, Glynn & Julie

Recently Jan and I went on a day out with Yamba Fishing and Charters to catch fish. And that is what we did big time. Yamba Fishing and Charters is one hell of a company that really delivered.

From the professionalism shown by Julie from booking right up till the day of pickup Pick up and drop off arrangements were brilliant as we were picked up and dropped off at the wharf in the Iluka Riverside Caravan Holiday Resort where we had our van.
Another bonus was Glynn filleting the entire day's catch at no charge.
End of a great day was completed with the almost 'family like' farewells.

Glynn has an absolute affinity with the sea and fishing and it shows.

Thankfully, Glynn has no 'off' switch. Everything from explaining how to deep sea fish, getting us all safely out and back across the Clarence River bar, assisting with baiting hooks and the odd tangled line, advice on reeling in the big ones, checking that all rods and reels were working to the ultimate. Also there was the advice and encouragement on landing the big ones, plus telling jokes and anecdotal tales of everything fishing. All this whilst driving the boat and always checking the fish finding equipment for the best spots.

I modestly brag that I caught my biggest fish and the biggest of the day, a 10 kilo King fish plus some smaller ones. Everyone on the day scored multiple fish.

Thanks for a great experience Julie and Glynn.
As a result we are now planning 3 monthly trips to Iluka/ Yamba to do it all over again, and again.

Dennis and Jan

Firstly, we apologise for the late reply Dennis & Jan. Your fishing trip with us was indeed fun & the fish were just a bonus. When offshore fishing you need to remember to leave your modesty back onshore...that's very hard work bringing in a 10kg kingfish. That's plenty of reasons to celebrate !! It was great to meet you both & customers like yourselves remind us why we do this for a living. Running a fishing charter business is physically hard but catching fish with enthusiastic customers out ways anything else. Yours in fishing, Julie & Glynn

Glenn and Julie are an amazing team and come highly recommended.We travelled some 35kms out, twin 260 hp motors has us cruising at 40 plus km/hr (hope I haven't sold this short). We had seven only fishing on the boat, everyone fished a 100% of the time. Any tangles were quickly dealt with(we really made a mess at one stage when most of us hooked up).
Glenn worked hard to keep us on the spots, tried different options with good outcomes. He is a really genuine bloke and threw a few good jokes out there also.
We caughta lot of fish such as Kingsfish, Pearl Perch, Amberjack, Teraglin and Snapper.Glenn cleaned and filleted the catch.

Thanks so much Glenn and Julie from the Junipers,Great day out, 10 out of 10.

To the Juniper boys, Peter, Greg, Jack & David. It was a pleasure to have you all onboard fishing with us & are very happy that you were able to take time to relax & enjoy the jokes....free of charge, of course. Our fishing trips are always about more than about the fishing. Many thanks for a great trip & looking forward to seeing you again soon. Julie & Glynn

Started off on a windy day. Glynn was accommodating from the start. Julie who helped us through the booking process and updated us the day before was super professional.
Fishing was slow but Glynn tried his heart out to get us in some successful spots. I’d say the weather conditions as well as the previous days accounted for the fish being picky.
Glynn is really attentive, knowledgeable and the jokes shouldn’t be missed ha ha.
Came home with a Pearl Perch and a 7kg jewfish- all cleaned and filleted.
Thanks Glynn and Julie. When we come back to Yamba, we will be first on board.

When the weather & fish don't play the game offshore, sometimes it's the jokes that get you by. Thanks Gail & Sonia for a great day & thanks for landing that awesome Mulloway...how did you cook it up? Did you use heat? Looking forward to seeing you both again soon...with new jokes. Cheers, Julie& Glynn.
